It's tough not to rush through your meals; some days, I barely have time to sit down for lunch till 3 p.m.! But slowing down can help you slim down: Researchers from the University of Rhode Island at Kingston found that people who ate more slowly consumed 70 fewer calories per meal than speed eaters.
Instead of plowing through your meals, pace yourself using this soothing breathing technique before you start to eat: Inhale deeply through your nose, then exhale slowly. Repeat several times, says Yvonne Nienstadt, nutrition director at Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico.

Another benefit

For many of us the day does not begin until we have enjoyed our first cup of coffee. We know it helps increase our energy and alertness, but there is increasing scientific evidence to show that coffee may also help provide significant protection against the development of liver disease. In a presentation at the Tea and Coffee Symposium in June 2003 Professor D'Amicis, Head of Nutrition Information Unit at INRAN in Rome, Italy, highlighted how coffee drinking specifically could be protective against:

  • Cirrhosis of the liver (a disease causing progressive damage and scarring of the liver tissue and function)

  • Gallbladder disease - by reducing the risk of gallstone formation.

  • An increase of liver enzyme activity. A high liver enzyme activity is a recognised indicator that there has been deterioration in the functioning of liver cells and possible development of disease in the liver.

Consider this news research on coffee

Coffee Health Risks: For the moderate drinker, coffee is safe says Harvard Women’s Health Watch.

Despite 20 years of reassuring research, many people still avoid caffeinated coffee because they worry about its health effects. However, current research reveals that in moderation—a few cups a day—coffee is a safe beverage that may even offer some health benefits. The September issue of Harvard Women's Health Watch weighs the pros and cons of this popular beverage and eases the concerns of moderate coffee drinkers.
The latest research has not only confirmed that moderate coffee consumption doesn't cause harm, it's also uncovered possible benefits. Coffee may reduce the risk of developing gallstones, discourage the development of colon cancer, improve cognitive function, reduce the risk of liver damage in people at high risk for liver disease, and reduce the risk of Parkinson's disease. Coffee has also been shown to improve endurance performance in long-duration physical activities.

Wow better watch up guys

Cup of coffee with your cereal sends blood sugar soaring

Canadian team finds caffeine with carbohydrates makes body insulin resistant
Sharon Kirkey, The Ottawa Citizen
Published: Tuesday, May 20, 2008


Eating low-sugar cereal may seem like the healthy choice, but drink a cup of coffee before breakfast and you might as well go for the chocolate corn pops.
Canadian researchers say drinking coffee before eating your morning cereal can affect the body's blood-sugar response and cause blood glucose levels to rise dramatically - especially when eating low-sugar cereals.
According to the study by University of Guelph researchers, blood sugar levels in people who ate low-sugar cereal were 250 per cent higher if they drank caffeinated coffee before or with breakfast, compared to decaf.
Earlier research has shown that, "whether you're a healthy individual, obese or a Type 2 diabetic, when you ingest caffeine and then follow that with some food that's carbohydrate-based, for a prolonged period of time -- certainly six hours at least -- your body becomes insulin resistant," says Terry Graham, professor of human health and nutritional sciences at the University of Guelph.

Patin experience

This is my 2nd visit to pay pond in Seremban for fishing the elusive patin...(heheheh try gardenia bread for baits). Just wasting my free time and try my luck with my new fishing gear.
Got one unlucky bugger and apalagi catch and release la

Coffee and it effects

Caffeine is present in many prescription and non-prescription (over-the-counter) drugs, including some taken for headache, pain relief, appetite control, staying awake, colds, asthma and fluid retention. The caffeine contents of drugs varies from 7mg to 200mg per tablet.

Caffeine is generally consumed in amounts less than 300mg per day, roughly equivalent to:
3-4 cups of roast and ground coffee
5 cups of instant coffee
5 cups of tea
6 servings of some colas or
10 tablets of some painkillers
